It's hard to believe that it's only been 1 week since our Mid-Winter break. But March is in full swing here at Marine Park. Parent Teacher Conferences are this week (Tuesday, March 6). The musical, Hairspray, will take place at the end of the month. Faculty and students are hard at work! And before you know it, State tests will be here. Students are busily reviewing test sophistication skills, while continuing their regular curriculum.

Are you signed up for Pupil Path? If you're a 6th and 7th grade parent or student you received reading suggestions from Mrs. Keller.
